Corrado Body Kits, bumpers and spoilers

OK this time instead of writing myself, I’ll copy the info that mack73 posted on VW Vortex corrado forum, it’s quite useful, and you have all the corrady body kit options listed below (I myself am a fan of minimalistic styling and justifying it with purpose, and it makes me sick seeing some riced out all plastic space-invader style corrados :)

There are basically 9 companies making 12 front bumpers to choose from, they are 1. ABD/Erebuni/Oettinger, 2. Dietrich, 3. Mattig, 4. Rieger GTB, GTS, R-RS and GTO styles, 5. Zender, 6. Kamei, 7. Seidl, 8. Lumma, 9. RS
1. The ABD/Erebuni/Oettinger are all the same made my different companies- Oettinger made the bumper originally but has since quit, ABD sell one ( http://www.abdracing.com ), also Erebuni sells one- called style 846 ( http://www.groundeffects.com )
2, 3 and 4 (R-RS style) are almost identical. The major difference is in the overall height of the bumpers and the fact that the Mattig requires the use of MK3 turns and fogs. The lowest bumper is the Mattig followed by the Rieger, the highest from the ground is the Dietrich. The Dietrich and Mattig are full replacements, whereas the Rieger is an add on to the stock bumper, Also the Rieger is made out of ABS instead of fiberglass like the Dietrich and Mattig. The Dietrich can be bought directly from Germany ( http://www.dietrichtuning.de ) or through distributors in the US. The Mattig and Rieger can be bought through distributors in the US like RPI Equipped ( http://www.rpi-equipped.com )
4. Rieger GTB, GTS and the Widebody GTO styles are all available from RPI ( http://www.rpi-equipped.com )
5. The Zender is also not made anymore but a copy can be found from Erebuni, On there website its called style 190
6. The Kamei Freedom Design Bodykit can be bought from Rocky Mountain Motorworks under the label Aero Kit G60 and Vr6 ( http://www.motorworks.com )
7. The Siedl “Venus” bumper is made in europe by Siedl Tuning and can be bought from their website ( http://www.seidl-tuning.de ). There is a US copy made by e-strictly foreign but all of there stuff is made very badly so stay away from all of there stuff.
8. The Lumma Bumper. This bumper is also made in europe by Lumma Tuning. It can be purchased from Stroeve Motorsports ( http://www.csi-auto.nl/carshopping/0512 )
9. Lastly the RS bumper, The bumper uses turn signals from A2’s. It can be purchased from TM Tuning ( http://www.tmtuning.com )
Now sideskirts, there are basically 7 companies making 10 different sideskirts, 1. The ones that goes with the ABD/Erebuni/Oettinger kit, 2. Rieger R-RS Infinity, GTB, GTS, GTO, 3. Custom ones made by Zarman on Vortex,. 4. Zender, 5. Kamei, 6. Seidl, 7. Lumma
1. The ABD/Erebuni/Oettinger ones can be bought from the sites previously given
2. The Rieger sides can be bought from the previously listed site
3. Zarman’s custom ones can be bought from his site ( http://www.lunchbox3.com/shop/ )
4. Zender sideskirts can be bought from the previously listed sites
5. Kamei sideskirts can be bought from the previously listed sites
6. Seidl sideskirts can be bought from the previously listed sites
7. Lumma sideskirts can be bought from the previously listed sites
Lastly Rear Aprons, There are 8 companies making 10 different bumper options to choose from The last option requires custom modifications to any US spec front chin spoiler, 1. ABD/Erebuni/Oettinger, 2. Dietrich, 3. Mattig, 4. Rieger GTB, R-RS, GTO, 5. Zender, 6. Kamei, 7. Seidl, 8. Lumma, 9. Some people use a stock chin spoiler as a rear apron
1. ABD/Erebuni/Oettinger rear bumpers can be found at the sites listed above
2. Dietrich makes a rear bumper, the only modification is a indent for a license plate in the bumper instead of on the hatch, again they can be purchased at the previously site
3. Mattig does the same thing and Dietrich and makes a bumper with an indent for a license plate; The bumper can be purchased at the previous site
4. Rieger GTB, R-RS, GTO Rear bumpers can be purchased from the previously listed site
5. Zender rear bumpers can be found again at the Erebuni site
6. Kamei rear bumpers can be purchased from the previously listed site
7. Seidl rear bumpers can be purchased from the previously listed site
8. Lumma rear bumpers can be purchased from the previously listed site
9. The Stock chin spoiler takes a lot of custom work; basically it requires cutting the spoiler at the exhaust cut out, and bending the ends to match the contour of the rear bumper. Lastly the ends need to be cut off at the wheel well and end caps glued or plastic welded back on
Pictures for all of these kits can be found at there respective websites. There are many other sources to purchase these bodyparts, I only supplied one such source
